Solution and Implementation

Precise and Efficient Execution

The installation was planned meticulously to minimize disruption during school terms. GHE Solar’s comprehensive Construction Design and Management (CDM) strategy ensured safety and efficiency throughout the project.

Key Aspects of the Installation:

  • 115m Cable Run: Integrated seamlessly with the school’s existing infrastructure.
  • 300m Cable Run: Ensured effective connection of the new ground array to the school’s electrical systems.

These substantial cable runs were essential to the system’s integration, highlighting GHE Solar’s expertise in managing complex installations.


Significant Contribution to Sustainability Goals

The newly installed solar PV system produced 33,035 kWh in its first month, significantly reducing the school’s reliance on non-renewable energy sources. This installation not only supports the school’s sustainability goals but also serves as a practical educational tool for students to learn about renewable energy.


Educational Commitment to Renewable Energy

Port Regis School’s new solar PV system is a critical step in their journey towards energy independence and sustainability. It provides a live educational example of renewable energy for students and staff.
